Moment of Kairos by N.J. Burns

Four worlds. Four ages. Four struggles through deserts, demons, criminal underworlds and overwhelming odds. Elian searches for answer to the mysterious blackouts, led forward by his only clue: an encoded diary. Ben stalks the streets at night in search of horrific creatures not of this world. Alexander hunts down criminals, always intent on doing the right thing whatever the cost. And Prometheus tries to save his village without dying in the process.
Separate but intertwined, they press on, linked somehow to the mysterious John, who watches and waits - for it seems each of the four is part of something much greater than they could ever have imagined.

Reviewer: QueenBee
There are four boys, and they span four different periods of time and four different scenarios but they all have some of kind of trouble that plagues them personally or the society they live in. One common thread ties them together, a mystical figure called John.

I was bit lost after the third intertwined character was introduced. So I went and reread the synopsis for this book and then things made a whole lot of sense. What I liked about this book was the way the author was able to keep your attention . Just as we got to a good part about one character then he leaves us with a cliff hanger and moves on to another character. It sounds dysfunctional but it works and it was fun to guess what will happen next, based on the actions in the previous chapter relating to each character and this John's role in all this. I have to give this book 3.5 stars, it's great start to this series and I love the twists in this sci–fi/fantasy novel
